Construction Recruitment Day, held on Friday, October 26, represented LSU’s largest construction management (CM) recruitment event held on campus. As a result of the positive turnout, the event had to be relocated from the LSU Student Union to the Maddox Fieldhouse to accommodate the requested space. With over 70 companies, there was a one-to-one ratio of number of employers to CM graduates for Fall Semester 2007, as the event served to facilitate interviews for potential full-time, internship and/or Co-op positions.

In addition to the scheduled interviews, there was a browsing period to encourage CM students to approach employers outside of the interview process to learn about opportunities in the CM field. Employers and student applicants were also given the opportunity to dine together during lunch while listening to remarks from Career Services and the Department of Construction Management.

Approximate final numbers for the event totaled 133 students participating in 644 conducted interviews.
